Many feel that Central Iowa’s culture of collaborative leadership is the key ingredient that has driven the region’s ascendance as an increasingly prominent destination of choice. Therefore, the Social Capital has been tasked with ensuring that a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens is used when envisioning, designing, and implementing projects across the region.


Capital's Overarching Goal

Central Iowa will become the gold standard of the successful 21st century region.
